Assume your starting point is the round about where roads A82 and A828 intersect, on the south side of the west end of Loch Leven, on the Scottish west coast approximately 21 km (13 mi) south of Fort William. Drive 7.6 km (4.7 mi) on A828 in the direction of Oban and park at the north end of the community centre on the right hand side of the road, next to a small play ground.
Cross the gate behind the community centre building and follow the grassy service road uphill. At 230m, when you're level with the mast a little below the summit, fork left onto a path and follow this path to the trigonometric point marker at the summit.
Descend by reversing your ascent route.

After some rough weather earlier this Wednesday, while hiking Stob Dubh and Stob Coire Raineach, it was nice to do an easy walk in sunny conditions.
